Nicole Richie & The McQueen Scarf
Perhaps no one in our little circle of beloved fashion notables has risen so high from starting so low as Nicole Richie. Let's remember it wasn't all that long ago that she was wearing Wet Seal looks and palling around with Paris Hilton. But then the lady went boho — and we're not talking just any kind of boho. No, her casual pieces — from torn jeans to hippie dresses to her ever-present scarves — are always impeccably sourced. It's become a sort of dreamy, intelligently flung-together Cali style that has turned her into a serious fashion commodity, and the rock-'n'-roll scarf is the linchpin.
